Super Platforms, such as Alibaba and JD, are collectively forming the Chinese “highway” of retail, providing most efficient ways to deliver products to consumers. These super platforms are fertile ground for the next generation of national direct-to-consumer brands.
China is home to multiple tiers of cities and incomes, and a kaleidoscope of unique individuals, different generation, and distinct groups. This singularity of the Chinese market makes it extremely complex and dynamic. Indeed, Chinese consumers are unlike any others.
Along with the growing dominance of smartphones and new media platforms, such as TikTok and Kwai, Chinese consumers are becoming more sophisticated buyers, motivated by a strong desire to buy what can make their lives better.
